In the troubling aftermath of recent mass shootings, Michael Meade takes up the issues of violence and the male psyche, the lack of rites of passage, the instability caused by white supremacy and the necessity of tempering the souls of men. He approaches the tragedy of gun violence through the Irish proverb, "You don't give a man a weapon until you have taught him how to dance." And he reminds us that "the essential test of any culture involves whether it can find an imagination greater than violence and brutality."
